Naturalist// by Anonymous

Shades of synthetic white and blue spilled across the counter.
Each dot a chance to dive under, every circle a chance at escape
Elements assaulting one another, air and earth appear the same, which way is up?
The sky falls through beneath unsteady feet but this must be flying. 
Fire and air lead together, even the caress electrifies the body, 
breath brings flames to scorched chest.
Water and fire clash raging war of flooding acid, searing scars into flesh,
water and earth muddied the thoughts, vision clouded, stable ground slick, 
caught in a landslide. 
Water, air... water, filled lungs gasping, collapsed onto muddied earth, air caught in throat and vision clouded,
acid scorched skin and burnt blood. 
Engulfed by each element and one with the earth//
